Red poppy nails

After two weeks of ringing frosts the weather finally went back to the norm cold. It feels great to know that outdoors it’s +2C and not -22C. The weather change was one of the reasons I did a bright red poppy nail art:

The other reason is called Golden Rose Jolly Jewels #110. It was a spontaneous purchase, something that I have a bad habit of doing when it comes to nail polishes :) Here’s a close up of the bottle:

Golden Rose Jolly Jewels #110

Golden Rose Jolly Jewels #110 is a mix of red and black glitters in a off white jelly base (actually it looks more grey than white). It’s not an easy polish to wear, I tried to apply it solo and I didn’t quite like the result, as it looked rough to me. That’s why I decided to layer it over a grey base. In the pics here you can see 1 thin coat of the glitter over OPI I Vant to Be A-Lone Star.

Back to the poppy design – the black glitter in the polish reminded me of poppy seeds, and the red glitter of poppy flowers. Thats how I got the idea of red poppy accent nails. I painted the flower with OPI You Rock-apulco Red, and for the dark outlines I used OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok fine!

That’s it, I hope you liked my nails with poppy flowers :) Thank you for reading!
Now I’m off to bed, see you next time ♥

      Thank you Anna, it’s nice to see you here :) I must shamelessly admit I was very happy with how the flower turned out, it looked very lovely in rl surrounded by red sparkles of glitter.. Unfortunately the sky was cloudy and there wasnt’t enough daylight to take better pictures of the poppy nails :(

      I see.. The color of the polish is ok, I like the red/black combo of glitters in the light grey base, what I don’t like is how thickly and over glitter-y it looks on my nails on its own. I’d say there’s too much glitter in it, or the base is too thick for this amount of big glitter particles..
      Maybe you managed to find the right way to apply/wear it :) Now I’ll be looking forward to see it on your nails! ;)

      1. I’m waiting for my nails to grow a little so I can make prettier swatches I hope it will be soon :)

  5. I love this manicure, the poppies are so well painted.. :) And Jolly Jewels are totally cool! :)
